Love Island bombshell Remi Lambert raps about 'hurting women and drug taking'

New Love Island bombshell Remi Lambert is an amateur rapper whose tracks contain derogatory comments about women and drug taking.

The Manchester hunk makes his debut in the Love Island villa tonight introducing himself as a model.

But videos posted to YouTube under the name Remi Lambo show the 22-year-old has also had a stab at a music career.

A music video called Bipolar was uploaded to the platform on March 22 – just a few weeks before Love Island started.

In the almost three-minute video Remi wears a yellow puffer jacket and matching trainers with black trousers and a backwards black baseball cap.

The song contains numerous references to drug taking including ‘Purple’, a recreational drug drink made by mixing large doses of prescription medicines.

He also raps about using Dior perfume to cover up the smell of smoking weed.

While two other songs contain sexually explicit lyrics which reference sadomasochism and damaging female genitalia during sex.

In a track called Superhero, posted in December 2020, Remi raps: “Broke her pum pum, it needs a cast.”

While in Mr Grey, posted in October 2020, he compares himself to the famous Fifty Shades character Christian Grey.

“Unless we’re talking Fifty Shades, I don’t do strings attached,” he says.

He adds: “Blow her back out, climax, then blackout. Hit her raw smackdown then she want to tap out.”

Remi only has 88 subscribers to his YouTube, but both his Mr Grey and Superhero videos have been viewed over 60,000 times each.

The latest video for his track Bipolar was uploaded by Mixtape Madness, who have 1.39 million subscribers.

A source close to Remi said: “I don’t necessarily agree with how women are described in rap music in general.

“However of course Remi does not condone violence against women. There’s no malicious intent here at all.

“He would be upset at the suggestion and we hope people see the real him on Love Island.”

Before entering the Love Island villa, contestants are trained on using acceptable language and behaviour as part of the ITV2 dating show’s duty of care protocols.

On the Love Island website it says all contestants are offered guidance covering inclusive language on race, ethnicity, sexuality, disability, behaviours and microaggressions.

Ade Rawcliffe, Group Director of Diversity and Inclusion at ITV, said: “The world we live in is changing every day, and we want all of our Islanders to feel they are part of an inclusive environment in the Villa.

"As part of our duty of care process, it is also important we play our part in educating our participants to understand and empathise with different perspectives and lived experiences.”

*Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2
